than making them automatic meat cleaver cuts as so many worry about they would give the pentagon some discretion and latitude to target the spending cuts themselves. whether they will reduce the number of spending cuts that hit the pentagon and the dod that remains to be seen. what we do understand is in a few hours the republicans in both the house and senate will say let's give the pentagon some jurisdiction over these spending cuts rather than imposing automatic cuts that in some cases could do more damage than good. jon. jon: carl cameron on capitol hill in washington thank you. jenna: as the president looks for a short-term solution to the nation's spending problem the congressional budget office has come out with a new and quite frankly disturbing report about our financial situation, our soaring debt. right now our debt is at a record of more than $16 trillion. in just ten years the cbo says that number will grow to become 77% of what we produce, what our economy proceed dies. gdp. horry rolori rot man is with us. >> these projections are the latest evidence showing that our go

hit the pentagon and as you talked about defense secretary leon panetta earlier testifying on benghazi. he also testified about these budget cuts. he said it would have a dramatic impact on the american people and the country's military readiness with all these big threats all around the world, shep. >> shepard: republicans aren't bending either here. >> no, they aren't. they are saying, look, they are not going to swallow more tax increases that the president laid out there a moment ago. and they also said that when you look at the latest fox news poll, take a look at what the american people are saying about how they don't want more tax increases, they want more spending cuts. when asked whether the president -- they agreed with the president saying the government does not have a spending problem, they think it does. 83% say yes, there is a spending problem. only 14% say no. and that's why senate republican leader mitch mcconnell says they are not going to bend on raising taxes. take a listen. >> the american people will not accept another tax increase to put off a spending cut that
from defense and domestic programs. that would mean temporarily laying off thousands of pentagon staffers. air traffic controllers, border guards and federal agents. carl cameron is in d.c. carl? >> thanks, shep. senate democrats today actually proposed their alternative to all these across the board cuts. they come up at the end of the month. it's $55 billion in spending cuts. and $55 billion in tax increases. but ta up $650 billion already this year. so when republicans heard that they i. the democrats were talking about more, the g.o.p. said no way. not a solution. even they know it can't pass. political stunt designed to mask the fact they have offered no solutions. >> congressional budget office estimates the cuts would trim 8% off the department of defense and about 5% to 6% off othe rest of the agencies. democrats insist that any solution to decades of deficit spending has to include tax hikes on the rich. is is it a spending problem? no. it's because we have a misallocation of capital. a misallocation of wealth. we have a tax code that is skewed for the wealthy. >> so rep
highlighted recently after the pentagon looked at ban on women serving in combat. while there's a lot of talk about the future of women in the military, we haven't spent a lot of time what the reality is for them now. that is the subject of a new book by an author known for her book turned tv series, "army wives". you might know that. her new book, umdaunted. the real story of american kfs women in the military. on bookstores today. congratulations. a big accomplishment. >> thank you very much. jenna: we don't spend a lot of time what is actually going on right now. you followed some women over a five, six-year period. tell us a little bit about the reality that they face. >> well, with this book i wanted to see what does it take to really be a successful servicewoman, what does it take? so i found these four extraordinary women who are all trailblazers. but the thing about the military is, professional success often comes at a personal price for both men and women but women face their own set of unique challenges that they often deal with out of public view. i wanted to examine that. jenna:
doing this from tsa to the pentagon and you have the white house, i believe, egging them on. it's in the white house' interest to create the most lurid possible story about what the cuts would mean. they want to put them off or substitute tax increases for them. jon: we heard ray lahood talking about airport patrol towers that will be unmanned from midnight on. frankly there are a lot of airport control towers unmanned from midnight on and pilots land anyway. >> the way these things were designed, they were designed to be stupid and designed to make it painful for both sides. so they do something else to reduce the deficit instead, that is not going to happen. the sequester is going to happen march 1st and i think after that at some point hopefully both sides will sit down and figure out a more rational way to allocate these cuts. these cuts should happen. if we can't gut 3% of the budget over ten years we moisture as well declare national bankruptcy right now. jon: interesting that its discretionary funding, and programs that are getting cuts, no cuts from mandatory spending. >
